The battle for survival in the Botswana Premier League (BPL) continues to throw the bottom three sides deeper into a precarious situation.

Due to the turn of events, Mahalapye Railways Highlanders who are currently rooted at the bottom of the log standings registered a 1-0 loss to Orapa United on Saturday.

With a total of eight matches remaining, the Mahalapye based side have registered only two victories since the season started. The loss to Orapa United spoiled what appeared like a redemption for the team, which has avoided defeat in the last three matches. Following their shocking 3-1 win over Police XI last month, Highlanders went onto play a 0-0 draw against Masitaoka before they played another stalemate with fellow strugglers, Prisons XI. From 22 games, they have collected only 12 points with a goal difference of minus 29.
